    Seriously APPLE?! Fix the problem!

    • Written by Joe S from Bay minette

    As with the majority of the reviews this product is far subpar. I enjoy Apple products as much as the. Ext person but these light ing cord are rediculous. I have had my iPhone 5 since it came out and it works fine dispite use and abuse plus an otterbox... So i guess thanks Otterbox! But these cords are useless. Every one from apple has broken within months and all third-party chargers that stay together end up quiting and i get an "accessory not supported" message after using the stupid thing for weeks every single day with no issues. All i can figure is ur updates mess up the connection somehow. I would glad to pay more for a charger if it worked longer than a few months, even though I think $20 is too much for a flippin charger... I want quality over quantity and will pay for it if I have to.

    0 Star is the real rating

    • Written by Michael W from New Braunfels

    Charge cables are never an issue with any of my other audio or video equipment. NEVER.
    I'm a pro in video production so at any given moment I have a dozen or two pieces of equipment to keep powered and charged.
    Charge cables are ALWAYS an issue with any Apple product be it laptop, phone or tablet.
    Poor design, poor quality control, and obviously engineered to fail often.
    Seems desperate to me that the second most valuable company in the world must supply poor quality and then REQUIRE their licensed inferior design to carry 5v at 2amps through 2 conductors frequently unsuccessfully.
    Shame.

    Terrible Product

    • Written by Brianna H from Calgary

    I have had the USB Cable for 1-2 months and it is already falling apart on me. The rubber that protects the cord is tearing, and revealing the wire within the cable. Also, the USB Cable will not charge my phone so I have to position it correctly intruder to charge my phone. Im tired of buying new cables every month and I suggest that Apple should make there cables out of a better material so it does not tear.

    The Worst!

    • Written by Rachelle N from Floral Park

    As much as I love Apple, the company makes the most fragile accessories and cables. Of course, they are not standard so you have to order from them. They seem to break under normal use and I am always afraid that they will fray and break down.
    When you need to use your equipment it is stressful to find out that you can't charge something.

    Apple, start making better cables.

    So bad, so embarrassing

    • Written by Vlad S from Toronto

    For a company like Apple, or for any company for that matter, it is just downright embarrassing to make a product that consistently fails. I never ever had another cable where the insulation just spontaneously started to fray at the flex points. I've had 2 cables, both gently handled, both failed, with the insulation just fraying from the inside wire.

    Trash

    • Written by Cameron S from Menomonee Falls

    This cord broke in a few months after purchasing new. A cord from a different brand lasted longer. This product is a disgrace to Apple product quality and the company in general. How hard is it to make a decent cord? It's a joke

    Lighting Cable

    • Written by Mackenzie N from Midlothian

    I have gone through 6 lighting cables in the past 3 months and spent over $80 on lighting Cables. I think it's absolutely ridiculous that the cord breaks and stops working no matter how much I took care of it it continuously broke.

    Horrible cable from apple

    • Written by Kirene R from Easy Stroudsburg

    This is like the 5th time I have to buy a cable. I am so upset about the waste of money. Yet, I have to buy it from apple because when you give other non-apple kinds a try they tend to fail after a while too.

    Very disappointing apple. What are you even doing about it?

    for single use?

    • Written by Annie S from Beirut

    if there were the option of zero stars, this would be it.
    had the phone6 for a year now, purchased a dozen of chargers (not counting "borrowing mom, dad, sis, bro" chargers).
    they were made for single use? for a premium product as Iphone, i was hoping a more rigid charger that would last a year, and not short my laptop & phone. i'll be buying 4 more chargers now, and spend 100$, knowing that in 4 months i'll be back to the shop, and the salesman won't be surprised :(

    Horrible

    • Written by India S from Boothwyn

    The chargers breaks too easy. I'm paying a lot for the phone; I should be able to get a quality charger too. Apple makes a new phone every couple of months, but can't make a new charger or at least go back to the old one. I'm convinced they just want us to keep spending money every 4 months on a new charger. Or they could even move where you insert the charger, so you are not bending it as much. Please fix the issue

    Always Breaking

    • Written by Edward M from Swan Lake

    Never in my life have I had to go though more chargers for just one device. The charger tends to bunch up at the top near the charging port. After it has had enough tension, it'll rip and ruin the inner wires. I've probably bought at least 5 of these in about a year. However, the 2 meter charger cable did last me significantly longer than the .5 meter. I recommend the 2.0 meter if you have issues with the charger cord being too short. Rather than buying $100 worth of cables in a year it's a lot better to buy one $30 and go through two of them. I truly hope Apple will make their cables knit with nylon, as my old nylon cable for my iPhone 5s lasted me well over a year before it took a hit and died out.

    Unacceptable

    • Written by Austin G from East Kingston

    I have needed to replace my lightning cable for my iPhone 5 a total of three times now since purchasing it. Unlike the 30pin connector for my 3rd gen ipad, which still works fine, the lightning cable (by Apple) is not suitable for daily use. Regardless it still needs to be used multiple times daily to charge a phone.

    WORST CHARGER EVER

    • Written by Fran T from atlanta

    This charger lasts no longer than 5/6 months. This month made the 6th month for my use of the charger and it just went out. I didn't even move it around, it stayed in the same place from the beginning and I was careful with it. Apple needs to do better with the charger! How can you have top of line electronics with worthless chargers?! Can't even keep your things charged. ��

    PIECE OF TRASH

    • Written by Patrick B from Chicago

    I opened my new iPhone 8 plus day before yesterday. This morning, I took out this chord so I could charge my phone and play music in my car. THE CHORD DOESNT WORK. It charges my phone for 3 seconds and then stops and repeats this process for as long as I have it plugged in. Y'all are wack for selling this garbage to people and now I have to schedule a trip to the apple store located in the non stop traffic jam that is clybourn, north avenue, and halsted. THANKS LOTS APPLE. I only gave this one star because zero is not an option.

    Fix your charging cables

    • Written by Jonathan F from Blaine

    If it was up to me I would label all these lightning USB cables 0 stars. I have been an apple user for 4 years now and the only reason I have not moved to PC is because of the new iPad pro which makes paper usage for my company documents obsolete. Through out the years I have seen so many chargers brake in the 1st month. At first I thought it was the way I was treating it, so I had been purchasing cables for every room and every location I could be in that way I have the minimum amount of interaction that would make the charger loose its ability to do what it was made to do which is power my device that I bought. Even after trying this for many months I still had them loose its ability to power my device unless the phone was positioned at an angle. If I wanted to go through this I would of bought an antenna TV. If any one reviews these I would say fix your dumb chargers. Stop being so freaking cheap and invest on more durable wiring.

    • Written by Priscilla B from Atlanta

    As much money we the consumers spend yearly on your extremely high in price products, you all at Apple should produce chargers that would last longer then a month. I've had my IPhone for a year now and I've had to purchase a total of 12 chargers within that year. I've had to pretty much purchase a new charger every month. Apple products are the best but your chargers not so much. Sorry not sorry....

    Worst in Accessories

    • Written by Chirag J from Yiwu

    I have been a very avid user of Apple products, but the original accessories never last long. Cheap Knock Offs from China last longer then these original chargers. I just use 1 cable in 1 location only, i.e I have separate cables for my car, office and home uses, and take very good care for my accessories, still I am forced to keep changing my charging cables every few months. I hope Apple considers these problems seriously and develop a charger cable which is more reliant and longer lasting.
